The Geek at Thanksgiving 1621
First of all Happy Thanksgiving. While for most Americans this is a day of celebration it is a day of mourning for many 1st Americans. Without hesitation Native Americans got the short end of the deal. It’s hard to resolve what America has become at the expense of entire tribes.
If you look at history there is a lot of dispute about the 1st Thanksgiving. I think most familiar to most of us is the one between the Pilgrims and the Wampanoag tribe. It seems that there was good relations between the two groups. The final beginning of the end was when the arrival of the Puritans.
Any way while we all gourge ourselves we need to take a moment to honor all those that sacrificed for us to have what we have. It’s not the prettyist of legacys but it is ours.
Happy Thanksgiving. The Diet begins a new on Friday.
